Not far. I currently live about 45min north west of down town Fort Worth. The new job is in Irving so most likely around the Keller/Hurst ish area. I have to sale the other house first which is taking way too long.

As for my update. My second daughter Adlei will be born on the 31st so busy getting ready for her. GTO runs like a dream but had to put mufflers back on due to the long drive. Alltrac hasnt changed much... Needs about one full weekend of my attention to finish all the little things here and there. One day as always.

Hey James. Doing OK here in San Antonio. Keri just helped me get my account reactivated. Some how it had gotten deactivated and I hadn't been able to log in for a while.

Anyway, things are going OK here. Did a little work to the All Trac last week during the plant shutdown. Replaced the park brake shoes and the cam cover gasket. Also put the blowoff valve back on. The car runs great. I'm in the process now of getting the parts together to do the Gen 3 electronics swap. I've got the ECU coming and will get the conversion harness coming tonight. Still have to pick up the MAP and the ignitor. Hopefully have the parts gathered in a few months.

Congrats on the 2nd child!
